Last Day of K!

Over the last few weeks I worked with a few of the other kindergarten moms to plan a little "recognition" ceremony for our graduating kindergartners. The school was pretty adamant that they did not want a graduation, but a "celebration" was fine. So, call it what you will. We planned a little party for our class, complete with caps and gowns and diplomas.
My friend and I made these little cupcake toppers. They each either have a cap or a diploma on them.

Yesterday my friend went to the school and took each student's picture in their cap and gown so we wouldn't be so rushed today.

Last night we squeezed in another win for the Rays! We are in the running for the number 1 team. Every player got a game ball last night. C loves to get game balls!

This morning we got ready a little quicker knowing that we were about to have 2 months of summer! No alarm clock for at least 8 weeks :) They also had Beach Day today. So when I got to his class they were all soaking wet! So this cute little faux hawk was a mess in all the graduation pictures :)
Our cupcakes turned out pretty cute!

We found out today that the little friend on the right is moving to Miami over the summer :( He was one of C's good friends.
They sang a song with macarena movements. I think it was the months of the year.
C received the "Most Energetic" award. That's a nice way to put it!

Below is who I like to refer to as C's soul mate. Her picture has appeared here numerous times. She and C can play in their own little world for hours. They have never gotten mad at each other. ever. I'm sad to say that she and her family are moving to Texas next month :( But, we are just looking at it as a good reason to visit Texas! I will try my hardest to keep these two in touch. They have such a special bond that I'm sure the miles apart won't matter.
And, last but not least, C and Mrs C. I feel like she was just the right teacher for C this year. She has such a gift for seeing potential and being an advocate. Because of her hard work, we have resources now that are going to make the rest of C's school career a success!

Awww... con"grad"ulations to C. (and his mom) for making it through the first year of his school "career". I'm so glad he had such a good teacher this year and sad that several of his friends are moving!
